Strawberry Syrup

"This pretty berry-flavored syrup is scrumptious, especially on homemade waffles," writes Sarah Carpenter of Trumansburg, New York. "Since I began making it, our three children prefer it over maple syrup."

    Delicious! My daughter asks that I remember to make this again! Kept leftover in fridge for a couple of weeks, warned back up and tasted just as good.

    This was a big hit! Poured it over the brown sugar oatmeal pancakes on this site, and everybody raved about it. Even had a little leftover that I plan on using over ice cream.

    This is very tasty! I added about 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla after it was finished. I loved it both ways. I have more strawberries so I'm going to try some variations!

    Very good syrup. The consistency is watery but most fruit syrups are. Taste is perfect. I left the seeds and they don't bother me or my kids at all.

    With company on their way and I was looking for a quick strawberry syrup to use for some crepes we were making. This was not only quick and easy but also delicious. Everyone loved it!

    I was a little skeptical about this syrup, but I loved it. It was so simple and very delicious.
